{Haute Finds} Home Fragrances from Michael S. Smith and DayNa Decker

I was in Chicago shopping at C.O. Bigelow earlier this week and had a chance to check out the Michael S. Smith Collection of home fragrances for Agraria which I had heard about but never had the chance to experience in person. I have to say, collection smells amazing which isn’t surprising given the fact that Michael S. Smith has impeccable taste. The line includes candles, reed diffusers and and fragrance sheets made of two signature fragrances created by Smith. The scents, Ankgor and Palma, are exotic, spicy and deeply intriguing. You can purchase the Michael S. Smith home fragrance…

Because style isn’t just about what you wear…

If you didn’t already know, InStyle recently unveiled a new design with its August Issue and it looks amazing. The magazine now has a younger voice and a strong emphasis on personal style. The fashion pages are better than ever…cleaner and more thoughtfully edited. But as much as I love the fashion, I love the magazine’s new home section 10 times more! The new and improved home section which is now called Life, etc (formerly Life & Home) includes the tag line “Because style isn’t just about what you wear.” A line that holds true here at So Haute, since …

Bedroom Sneak Peek!

I’ve been blogging for a while about re-decorating my bedroom and although it’s been a slow process, things are finally coming together. My headboard arrived over the weekend and it looks fantastic! I’m so excited so I thought I’d post this little sneak peek photo so you all could see the work in progress. I’ll share more photos when the room is a bit more complete. Along with having my headboard made, I also had a pair of X-stools reupholstered as well as had a slipcover made for my TV/Media stand. Those turned out amazing as well and I’ll be…
